All proceeds will benefit the Living Jazz Children’s Project. Over the past 15 years, Living Jazz has provided FREE music education to Oakland public elementary schools serving high percentages of low-income families (Title One) through the Living Jazz Children’s Project (LJCP). Over 5,000 2-3rd graders have now benefited from LJCP.
Living Jazz invites you to celebrate unity and freedom in our 19th annual musical tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr - In the Name of Love.
The showcase features much needed inspirational performances by musicians and speakers from the Bay Area and beyond. 2020 has been a tumultuous year to say the least. We aim to enter 2021 honoring the path that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. set us upon, in search of freedom, unity, equity, and peace.
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
